Just minutes away from a main road that we 've used so often and only a 15 minutes from home, this lovely lake was nestling in a small valley , surrounded by magificent trees and we didn't know it was there!!
A line of oaks that must be very old given the girth of their trunks
Silver Birch & Copper Beech
fields of daisies......
...and bushes of Rhododendron
If you look closely at this next one , you may be able to see the bumble bee on the tip of the left hand blossom !!
There were just a couple of houses dotted around the area, but something to suit all tastes I think!
Tiny but perfectly formed and complete with its own bread oven - bet it's cosy on a winter's day - and who wouldn't be happy to live in this lakeside house !!!!
An unexpected, but thoroughly enjoyable afternoon !! Isn't it surprising what is hidden around those corners if we just take the time to make a little detour instead of rushing from A to B !!!
